    The Google Arts and Culture application is the type of application people who are curious about the cultures of the world dream of. To start off the design is in balance with a clear color background and minimal text regarding categories and article titles. Users can easily navigate the main sections of the app from the bottom tab. The app can also be used in various ways whether consuming information from the content provided which ranges from classical artworks articles on historical figures, science as well as a range of other topics. The app can be used to create content by way of galleries the user constructs. The app can even be seen as a observational lens through use of Virtual Reality and Selfies. A short review can’t do this application justice. It is well worth a download just for the ability to enrich your imagination.
  • Great app, only one thing

    Great app to easily navigate some classics of art history. I only wish I could swipe through my favorites rather than clicking, backing out, and clicking again: the app occasionally has issues and sends me back to the main page when I use the back button, which is tedious if you have a few favorites to make your way through
  • Educational & Entertaining

    Besides the app not being able to be used offline, this app is stellar in every other aspect. The art is lovely to ponder upon, and my curiosity runs rampant the further I stay online!
  • The best app on my phone

    I am an artist and love this for research. My favorite place for falling down rabbit holes.

    I love the google arts and culture website and therefore was delighted when i found this app. However the app is super buggy and the navigation is confusing at times. I am sure with little improvements here and there it could be a lot better.
